The Javon Walker Timeline

Javon Walker will collect $2.6-million in 2010 for doing absolutely nothing. Not that it’s any different than how he collected all those Al Davis endorsed checks over the course of last the last two years.

Today the Raiders finally swallowed their stubborn pride and severed ties with the $55-million mistake.

In recent California history, there have been three epic cash failures.

3) IndyMac Bank

2) Andruw Jones

1) Javon Walker

Here is a timeline detailing Walker’s days as an Oakland Raider.

March 6th, 2008 – Raiders sign free agent Javon Walker to a 6-year contract valued at $55-million ($16-million guaranteed). Bernie Madoff praises Walker as the NFL’s Ponzi scheme king.

June 16th, 2008 – Walker is found unconscious at 7:19am on a Las Vegas street. Reports surface stating that Javon was seen at a Vegas night club two nights earlier where he sprayed the crowd with 15 some odd bottles of Dom P. Al Davis declares the incident a national tragedy. He later urges Vegas club promoters to begin immediate sensitivity training for their patrons who clearly failed to understand that Walker’s intentions were to impress skanks and not to promote violence.   

August 2nd, 2008 – Reports circulate claming that Walker was talked out of retirement by Al Davis. Davis denies the claim and then sends senior executive John Herrera back in time to assault every journalist who reported the story. Unfortunately Herrera was mistakenly sent into the future where he proceeded to accost San Jose Mercury writer Tim Kawakami. The incident creates a parallel reality in which Darrius Heyward-Bey becomes the greatest receiver in NFL history.

October 19th, 2008 – Walker scores the only touchdown of his Raider career in a 16-13 overtime win against the New York Jets. The touchdown helps little Timmy Okerman of Hemet, California, to a dramatic win in fantasy football. That same evening, on his death bed, Timmy thanked Walker for fulfilling his dying wish just prior to slipping into a diabetic coma. Walker establishes a fund for the continued research on the effects of abusing Mountain Dew Code Red. Slowly but surely, Mountain Dew begins to scale back distribution of Code Red.

November 9th, 2008 – Javon catches what would be his final pass as an Oakland Raider in a 17-6 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Herrera returns to the present where he attempts to warn Davis not to sign Walker but arrives too late. However, Herrera strongly advises Davis to draft Heyward-Bey to replace Walker.

November 14th, 2008 – Walker undergoes season ending ankle surgery. He finishes his first season in Oakland with 15 catches for 196 yards and 1 TD. Andrew Walter is saddened by the news and decides to dedicate the rest of the season to honoring Javon by refusing to take the field again until Walker returns. Walter is later released to make room on the roster for Darrius Heyward-Bey. 

May 8th, 2009 – Javon is unable to participate in off-season OTAs due to his recovery from a secret knee surgery. Walker becomes incredibly cryptic when discussing the surgery which we later discover took place in Israel (true story).

January 3rd, 2010 – The regular season comes to an end with Walker having been active for only three games. His stats: 0 catches, for 0 yards and 1 fumble. Bernie Madoff sends a letter to Walker offering him a job once Bernie’s 150-year jail sentence has concluded.

February 16th, 2010 – Walker returns to Las Vegas with rapper Bow Wow who convinces Javon to refrain from making it rain with expensive Champaign.

March 8th, 2010 – Javon Walker and veteran defensive end Greg Ellis are released by the Oakland Raiders. Walker vows to never rest until every can of Mountain Dew Code Red is removed from the shelves of convenient stores in the United States.

    Chris –

    This timeline is even more implausible than the most bizarre episode of Lost.

    Well done, Sir.

  • TexTex

    If you think Madoff ran a huge scam, here’s another example that has ripped off millions of people for several decades, to the tune of 10s of billions of dollars:

    Amway is a scam, and here’s why: Amway pays out as little money as they can get away with, so they support the higher level IBOs ripping off their downline via the tool scam.

    As a result, about 99% of IBOs operate at a net loss, while the top 1% make several TIMES more from their Amway tool scam than from the Amway products. This was made illegal in the UK in 2008, but our FTC is unable to pull their heads out of their butts to stop it here.

    Read about it on my blog, I suggest you start here: and forward the information to everyone you know, so they don’t get scammed.

    In 2008 Al Davis sold a chunk of the team and burned through that money faster than my wife the day after Christmas at Nordstrom.

    He vision was clouded by the fact that Walker was a Denver Bronco ( same with Gerard Warren ). There is nothing Al loves more than sticking it to the Broncos. Envy and jealousy are deadly sins.

    He begged Walker out of retirement just to fuck with my boy Lane Kiffin.

    Bottom Line: Javon Walker joins an illustrious group of horrible Raiders’ free agents ( in no particular order ):

    Jeff George
    Larry Allen
    Deangello Hall

  • Chris Shellcroft

    Thanks Slam!

    I’d like to also add Larry Brown and LaMont Jordan to your horrible free agent list.

  • JSpicoli

    You forgot that he wrote down his contract by $22 million in order to stay on the roster last year.

    It was not a $55 million mistake, closer to 25

  • JSpicoli

    And Kwame Harris was by far the worst of the FA pickups.

  • Chris Shellcroft

    True Spicoli. Fair point. After it was all said and done, Walker only collected about $14-million (according to the front office at least).

    Good call, I guess I wanted to purge the thought of Kwame Harris from my memory.

    Glad to see that the Buffalo Bills think Cornell Green is worth a 3-year deal though. Good luck with that.

  • JSpicoli

    PFT actually has corrected it’s Raider-hating self and says Walker made $14 million over two years, after tweaks to the contract.

    You are buying into the media hyperbole. How’s that Jake Delhommme contract working out? All we see is him crying on TV, he still gets big dough, but we don’t hear any crying for a psych-eval on the Panther’s owner.

  • JSpicoli

    lol, great minds think alike. I was just posting the 14 million info.

    Keep the faith Chris.

  • Slam

    Actually, the Panthers got SLAMMED for the Delhomme contract; and in fact John Fox, who pushed hard to re-sign him, mighty get fired over it.

    Eventhough Walker restructured his contract, $14,000,000 for 1 measly TD is monumentally stupid.

    ps Kwame Harris, Lamont Jordan, and Larry Brown are oustanding additions to the list.

  • RaiderFann

    What a joke, the head case. If another team picks him up they will be really stupid. He is also rumored to be subpoenaed in a federal indictment of the Canadian doctor who did his surgery in Israel that supposedly prescribed him hgh while he was a Raider which is a league violation. He is a total disaster what a waste of money. Are there any teams rumored to be interested in him still for 2010?

  • GB

    Javon Walker on one leg was and is better than D.H.Bust and Mr. Higgins any day. Al will never say why he never played in ’09.

  • RaiderFann

    Maybe he didnt play because they investigated that he was using human growth hormone from the doctor and that the Raiders wins etc. would be void or penalized if they played him since it is against league policy for players to use hgh as it’s considered a performance enhancing drug

  • Slam

    If the Raiders knew he was dirty, they would’ve narced him out to wiggle out of the contract.

    Also, the entire NFL is on HGH, so as my 14 yr old daughter would say, “whatEVER !”

  • Edward

    The Raiders are being tampered with by the NFL, Kraft (Patriots) and corporate firms. The reason they are having such a hard time is because the league continues to place people inside the organization to make unfair demands and rules that soften the club and also to spy for the league so much so that the Patriots are allowed to get inside information on players and staff of the Raiders without being penalized for it.

    Who was it that told rookie coach Lane Kiffin was giving physical practices? The NFLPA told Al to stop it and fined Oakland for it.

    Two years later ’09 the S.F. media brags about the 49ers being brutal against the Raiders in a light scrimmage then starting a fight were S.F. was very hostile when Raiders players tried to break it up. Although both sides tried to break up the fight. In ’08 49ers Frank Gore grabbed a Raiders’ player by the neck and no penalties came from the league office.

    But then again against the Texans rookie linebacker Brian Cushing tripped Justin Fargas with his leg while tackling him in the end zone and later helmet slapped Jamarcus Russell, no penalties were ever called.

    You have been zapped. You don’t want to be called a whiner but it is foolish to believe there isn’t a bias and goal to see this team lose. RaiderNation should really be paranoid about the Patriots raiding Oakland’s talent; Who will they get next? Morrison, Zach Miller? Why would Oakland keep giving draft choices and veterans to the Patriots for nothing in return when they could get higher draft picks from teams with higher draft picks? Right you can’t explain it but you don’t want to be seen as a whiner.

    If you want Oakland to have a fair chance to compete then you should start complaining to your local consumer affairs until their e-mail and mail box over flows and breaks down. Then e-mail or mail the NFL front office demanding they stop their bias and investigate outside corporations and the Patriots for tampering with the Raiders. If you don’t then you can expect the same as the past seven seasons.

    I did want to let you know there is a bank or investment firm from the east coast that has some stock in the Raiders or has loaned them a large amount of money and rumor is this is why Oakland give’s the Patriots almost any affordable players they need; as favor to the loaners who are friends with the league and Kraft Group.

    By the way ask yourselves these questions

    1. How did Derrick Burgerss just get well from quad injuries that kept him off the field nearly two seasons?

    2. Why would Oakland trade Randy Moss for a 4th when they could have gottin at least a 2nd from the Packers?

    3. Why did Lorenzo Neal go on injured reserve when he never did it in his entire career? Neal would have made it more possible for Oakland to make the playoffs.

    4. Why did Oakland trade up with the Patriots to select Mike Mitchell? For what? All they did was give the Patriots a lot of top 2nd and 3rd round draft picks.

    Get my point? It doesn’t make a lot of sense does it?

    RaiderNation call consumer affairs!
